7 Parks near Montrose, Colorado
Sep 2015 - $1.00
Not the place to come for ambiance, but it's close to town and convenient. All gravel lot and for a larger motorhome (we are 43 ft.) it's a bit tight getting around. That is mostly because the sites are not long and everyone has to park their vehicles in the driveways between rows. The site next to ours (we were in the back row) had a huge tree in the front of the site. We watched a smaller MH try to park there and they broke their mirror on the tree! There is no way they would have fit in that site, so not sure why they were put there. They ended up parking behind the tree, which left the back of their coach hanging out in the driveway, which meant no one could get through that way. The dog park is big, but in the week we were there, no one emptied the trash bin and is was overflowing with poop filled bags. It is also basically weeds and dirt, but thankfully no goat head stickers. The owner is super nice, but I think we would opt to stay elsewhere if we came through again. - scubajoe

Was a nice park to stay at. The host there was very helpful but the site that was assigned for us was full on arrival the trailer left one and a half after check out time.
The only down side for this park is the power supply, the 50amp is not available for all sites so even if our reunion asked to be together 6 months early there were not two 50amp together so when arrived they were in different sites. - Roger from boise

Very neat and clean park! Staff very friendly and helpful. Lots of shade and grass. Wifi was slow unless you are close to the office. Easy to get in and out of the park. It is a bit tricky to get to the park so I would call ahead for exact directions, - bobinidaho

Super nice people in the office every time we walked in there with a question, request, etc. Always had a good/helpful answer about the area attractions. Campground itself was spotless, nice grass areas for each camper. Spacious sites. We will stop again. - esbeasley

This was a monthly rate. We stay here nearly every summer for 5-6 weeks. A great base camp for the Western Slope and the beauty of the area is tough to beat. Excellent WiFi, if you can imagine that! Each site has grass & tables and most have trees. Staff does an excellent job all the way around. Many 4 wheel enthusiasts come for the summer. - donleeown

This campground is located about 10 miles south of Montrose on the road to Ouray. It is very nicely maintained with wide roads and very long and wide spaces, fairly level gravel sites with nice green grass, excellent showers and laundry facilities. The Internet is good (though the campground was not heavily occupied when we were there) but TV is poor...no cable and only four air stations not including NBC. It does not have a pool or store or firepits. The staff are excellent, friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay her again. - Solem8s

This CG is now a Jellystone Park campground. Clean facilities and well laid out. Close proximity to Montrose. The hosts went out of their way to include our children in camp activities (hay rides, nature walks, crafts, etc. Very nice people for sure. Clean laundry facilities, showers, and bathrooms. Game room was more my speed- pool tables, ping pong, shuffleboard (not a bunch of video games) kept the kids busy. The pull through sites are easy to get in and out of. Most of the trees are fairly young and will take a few years to provide large amounts of shade. Most of the sites are wide open which was ok. It seems like new ownership and they are working hard (and doing a good job) of keeping the place up. Nice clean playground with picnic areas. Unfortunately a fire ban was in effect so no campfires, but they do have community set ups for it. My only gripe was the pool water temp. I presume it was early enough in the season and they had not gotten the system up and running at full speed. Water temps were 68-69*F. Rather chilly by my standards, but the kids still put up with it. Plenty of things to see in the surrounding mountains, kept us busy for a week. Would come here again. - scottykrug

Friendly staff, clean bathrooms and showers. The pool and hot tub were also well maintained. We stayed and attended the Night Vision festival in Olathe, CO. We will stay again for next year’s festival. Rate was with AAA discount. - Bayfield Family Campers

New owners trying very hard to improve this park. From long term residents I understand that previous owners let the park deteriorate badly. We found the owner to be friendly, the sites were very large, WiFi worked, got a few local TV stations using our rig's antenna. Conveniently located for anyone who wants to see Ouray, Silverton or Telluride but doesn't not want to take their big rigs to those locations. We hope that the new owner is successful in building back the clientel who used to enjoy this convenient location. We would stay here again should we ever return to the Montrose area. - lonroberts

Although this Lodge only offers 30 and 50 amp electric hookups, the power is very good...no surges, brown-outs, etc. In fact, it's so good that we parked/set up both 30 and 50 amp Motorhomes in one site (very roomy sites) and the power never fell below 118. Backin sites. I would stay here again. There's water spigots for your convenience. - Br catlady

Side by side sites, host was very good on assigning you site as long as there was a space open did not place a camper nest to you. Is a quiet campground locater north of town. Spent two days at campground. Need to pay by check or cash does not take credit or debt card. Has a large area for family reunions cabins available. Would stay there again. - Roger from boise

No office, but a golf cart mobile check-in. As discussed by phone, cash or check only.
Friendly guy on duty escorted us to our small site (side-by-side). We had to share one picnic table with one neighbor and one sewer connection with the other. I hate side-by-side sites with strangers, especially when door-to-door distance is about 15 ft.
Only ten sites are available at the actual river side, rest of the sites are situated on one big gravel 'parking lot', with trees providing some shade.
No restrooms and showers.
Park is nearby highway, but quit day and night and situated along a nice fast flowing (at this time anyway) stream.
Wi-Fi excellent, strong signal and fast.
We found the price of $ 42 high, compared to other camp grounds in Montrose with more and better amenities. - Bluesbirdy

I would of rated this park higher but the lack of cable tv and wifi that was practically non-existent resulted in a lower rating. Overall a nice park with gravel sites and roadway, fairly level sites and located on a nicely flowing river. Its only a couple of miles out of town and fairly easy access to goods and services. There is no office and the single restroom is located in the laundry room which has 2 washer/dryer machines. Overall its an "OK" park that seems to be overpriced due to the lack of tv and poor wifi. We moved to another nearby park and got better pricing with tv service and a working wifi. - yachtjockey

Based on the prior reviews and overall ratings, we were excited to stay here. We didn't see what the hype is all about, unfortunately. We did like being very close to the Black Canyon of the Gunnison NP, which was our main reason for being in Montrose. We stayed in Ouray a few years ago and had an entirely different (better) experience.
*In town, 20 min from NP
*Grass, nice spot, easy in and out
*Quick check in
*Talked to the manager, Debbie at one point about a rude/difficult full timer and she was understanding and apologetic
*Not a great part of town, we were yelled at rudely when our nav app "Waze" sent us down the wrong street behind the KOA, and we actually felt unsafe
*About 50% of the park are residents; left early on weekdays, not very friendly, and didn't seem to have a lot of pride in their spots
*No dog run at all - need it!
*Lots of mosquitos = lots of bites, and of course realized it the next day after lots of itching
*No fire rings
*Hot tub was small, above ground. Was hoping for a nice, big, in-ground jacuzzi, so we didn't use it, but had hoped to. - Dank

This is a very nice park and we had a great site. The only downside we saw was the large percentage of long term residents in the park who do not maintain their site well - and no enforcement by the owners to make them do so. - AZSwede

If you come here during times that night temps are below freezing, you must bring winter protection for THEIR spigots and pipes. They do not protect their own water spigots from freezing. If you do not have this they will turn off your water. This is an expensive park, and I really don't think customers should be required to provide winter protection for their equipment. - Judi D

Huge park, 60 acres! Rough start: picked site 19, pulled in and no water hookup and electric box had an active hornet's nest inside. Changed to site 1. Great site! Close to dog park, laundry, restrooms, store, and Yogi Bear's cabin. Large grassy area and large aspen that shaded it. They're really working on getting all the grass grown-in. Ours was the best, in my opinion. Not busy for a Jellystone and not a lot of activities going on during the week. The weekend had a hayride, bonfire, and luau-themed dinner. Wi-Fi was super fast and very reliable. Antenna worked great, just didn't get NBC. Water pressure was unreliable. Overall, we had a good stay for 5 days. - LifeRidingShotgun

Just spent a week at this campground. It is a great base for exploring the San Juan Mtn area of Colorado. The staff is very helpful. They make a real effort to have activities for children. The sites are gravel and our pull-through was quite long. They work very hard to have some grass and nice trees. The only negative is poor TV reception. Otherwise, everything you could ask for. We would stay again. - Bud in Florida
